Testing Services



The presence of Lead in jewellery and accessories is an increasing matter for concern due to the harmful effects that this toxic element can have. As a result of this European Legislation under the REACH regulation and other legislation around the world limits the amount of Lead allowed in jewellery and other articles.

AnchorCert Analytical offers a UKAS Accredited Lead content test to check if items comply with EU and other worldwide regulations.

Cadmium is also an element that causes concern and so is also restricted by the REACH regulation and various other worldwide Regulations.

As a result of this, many customers require their items to undergo Lead and Cadmium testing to ensure that their contents is compliant with the REACH regulation.

AnchorCert Analytical therefore offers a unique, UKAS accredited combined test to check for both Lead and Cadmium simultaneously, which is cheaper than testing for them separately. To download a combined Lead & Cadmium testing application form click here.

AnchorCert Analytical is UKAS accredited to carry out Lead testing to check compliance with the REACH regulation and other worldwide regulations in our onsite fully equipped state of the art laboratory here in Birmingham.

The turnaround time for this service is within 5 working days.
